The English athlete was coveted by Manchester City and Liverpool, but his preference for Real made a deal between the two parties closer to happening. The Madrid club has not yet closed the deal, but hopes to finalize it by the end of May.
Bellingham was revealed by Birmingham City, England, and arrived at Dortmund in 2020. Since then, the 22 shirt has stood out in German football and has become one of the main names of the team, even being called up for the 2022 World Cup.
Despite having a contract with his current club until 2025, the midfielder is on the rise in the market and should not stay in Germany. This season, Bellingham participated in 40 matches with the shirt of Borussia Dortmund, scoring 11 goals and distributing seven assists, according to data from the Transfer market.
